Inside Forbes: What's Next For Native Ads? Controversy Gives Way To Market Realities

Inside Forbes: What's Next For Native Ads? Controversy Gives Way To Market Realities | Politics | Scoop.it

Not me, not a Mad Man, but Robert Mitchum in Cannes. Once a year the ad world gathers in Cannes, France, to congratulate itself.

 

...I went to Cannes Lions a few weeks ago to participate in a panel discussion with CMO’s — and to listen and learn. The talk along the Croisette can be summed up in a word: content. Not editorial content. Not the kind that makes up 30-second TV spots. But the stuff called native advertising — marketing messages for an era of social media that both marketers and publishers hope will outperform the trillions of display ads (those banners and boxes) that no one clicks on.FORBES is a recognized leader in the move to native ads.

 

We first launched our BrandVoice program in November 2010. Back then it was called AdVoice, itself the result of this earlier version. Today, we have 20 marketers, always identified and labeled as such, publishing content on Forbes.com. They use the exact same tools I do to connect and engage with news enthusiasts. With a hot trend comes new players, lots of banter (both substance and spin), increasing confusion and new thinking. There’s even a Web site with a native ad “leaderboard” that shows how publishers and brands are doing. And what kind of trend doesn’t have its own summit?That kind of hubbub calls for my own native ad update (with an assist from my colleague, Mark Howard, our SVP of Ad Products)...

#Leadership - 4 Reasons We Struggle with Ethics

#Leadership -  4 Reasons We Struggle with Ethics | Politics | Scoop.it

We think ethics is about rules. Laws can be demanded of people but ethics can’t. Rules are reactive. Ethics is proactive. Rules are about maintaining. Ethics is about leadership. Rules can only go so far. You can’t lead on rules alone. Rules can only regulate certain behaviors, but to grow you need to lead with ethics. Leading with ethics means to lead within a framework defined by how not what. 

Ethics provide a framework in which to make right choices—a framework in which to lead. They provide the how for our what.
